Booth,

Quite a few PC functions use this feedback.  Spell checkers, help
directories, products like Quick Books, etc. and I like them.  On my PC.

IMO, keystroke feedback sort of defeats the efficiency of block (5250)
transmission.

For that kind of feature, we would need an ER type keyword on a field
(maybe EK (Each Keystroke)).

The down side is that we would have a midrange system that has a
predictable linear degradation of response time based upon keystrokes. 
Heck, for that you can PICK (pun intended) any other OS. <g>
